2019 Hyundai Tucson Ultimate AWD Review - Just 1 Complaint

Hyundai has been launching new vehicles

left and right lately and even those

that aren't new have been pleasantly

refreshed I'm Kris model academics and

today we're gonna take a look at a 2019

drive slot it between the small Kona and

midsize Santa Fe this 2019 smokes and

$125.00 carpeted floor mats are the only

add-on for a total MSRP of 34,000 $120

the updated lighting elements and grill

have done wonders for the exterior

reminding me of some more premium

vehicles of similar size

there are 31 cubic feet of cargo space

behind the 60/40 split-folding rear

seats and a very usable 61 point 9 cubic

feet when you fold them down

well

you can learn more about that in our

recent review of the all-new 2019 Santa

Fe epa-estimated fuel economy is rated

at 21 miles per gallon city twenty six

miles per gallon highway with a combined

rating of 23 miles per gallon Auto

Academic saw an impressive twenty five

point seven miles per gallon during

testing a regular fuel

I don't even know why Hyundai bothers

putting the knee cutouts and the backs

of their seats anymore because legroom

is wonderful as our head and shoulder

room throwing the plethora of cupholders

heated outboard seats and USB port and

there's really not much to complain

about

[Music]

despite its monotone appearance the

cockpit of this Tucson looks nice with

soft touch materials practically

everywhere these seats are supportive

and feel really good hence again with

all the included details there's really

not much to complain about

so now we've addressed all that it's

time to take it out and see how it

drives

[Music]

as with pretty much all current-gen

Hyundai's this Tucson would make someone

very happy it's smooth quiet and nimble

enough and while powers just adequate

I'm not complaining because fuel economy

is good the stereo sounds good and the

adaptive cruise control now has to stop

and go feature included

[Music]

Hyundai's quality is truly up there now

all while keeping their vehicles pricing

within reason and like I said before

this Tucson would make someone very

happy

[Music]

so we've come to the end of this review

and I've had very few concerns I like

the interior I like the exterior and it

drives fine too in fact there's just one

complaint that I have it's that the

totally redesigned Santa Fe is larger

more powerful and has a few more

features for just a little more money in

fact that's the one I think I take as

always if you like this video give it a

thumbs up and share it with someone

who's looking for a good small crossover

finally if you haven't done so already

by all means subscribe so you don't miss

what we have coming up next I'm Kris

moto academics thanks for watching
